And now a little something about our District Chairs
There are eight Congressional Districts in the state of Wisconsin. The WFRW has a representative from each of those districts on the Executive Board. The District Chairs play a big role in keeping the flow of ideas and information flowing from the WFRW to their respective districts.
For each WFRW meeting they gather reports from the club presidents to create a district report of the activity the clubs or upcoming events. This is shared both with the WFRW and to the Executive Board of the Congressional Districts. Because of the strong grassroots efforts of the WFRW membership, these reports are vital in keeping the state informed of the activity.
